    so i had this idea no to long ago that i could buy a plastic case (the ones that go around the computer not the leather bag type ones) and add a few solar cells, connect them and have it lead to the charging area, powering the laptop or trickle charging it. This is just an idea, and i would love feedback/ways to improve it.

    Pointless. The charge from solar cells would be so little it's hardly worth the cost/trouble to do this.

    You would need quite a big solar panel for it to work.
    Then you'd have to figure out how to feed some curent, and Apple doesn't license the power adapter.
